Great marketing although the weather did not help out as this was delayed probably more than the brewery expected. Pours a sunny hazy gold with a nice big frothy top. Aroma of straw grains, light citrus fruit and earthy hops. Taste is dry mouthfeel with a nice grainy malt. Very clean, well fermented and light citrus.

2012-04-14. Lightly hazy golden body, nice creamy off-white head. 3+ Flavour is pleasant, moderately bitter throughout, light spice character that I can not quite put my finger on throughout. Not sure if it is a product of the yeast, or added to the beer. Perhaps pepper or coriander, but I might be reaching too hard to name it. Sweet undertone that makes me think of bubblegum in the middle but fades quickly into the finish. Light dry alcohol in the aroma, dry pale malt, light spice, light yeasty esters. Smooth average palate has a soft carbonation. Overall it struck me more like a sweet spicey wheat than a traditional saison. I enjoyed it, but I think I might have liked it better on another day. On tap at Brydens, Toronto

Poured light orange and cloudy with barely any head. Banana, clove, bubble gum and traces of pepper in the aroma. The flavour has a pleasant lightness, banana, clove and bubble gum are there as well as hints of a some other fruity esters. Smooth on the palate and a subtle finish.

April 12, 2012 - on draught at Burger Bar. Slightly hazy gold, nice and bubbly, with a large and lasting creamy/fizzy white head. Aroma is somewhat fruity and sweet, lightly spicy - really in all things seems like a blend of Unibroue Blanche de Chambly and Black Oakís Summer Saison. Thick body, very spicy and yeasty, not overly sweet, light carbonation, quite fruity and malty and quick finishing. These days itís not really my go-to style (sweet saison) but itís not that sweet and itís quite refreshing - good summer beer.

Lubiere (9428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2012
A golden saison with a super thick frothy white head. In aroma, pungent and grassy, with orange peels, perfume, a bit soapy, but nice. In mouth, a smooth sweet fruity malt with light curacao, coriander, berries, oily mouthfeel, grassy notes, very well made. On tap at Arrow and Loon, April 15 2012.

MXD (303) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
On tap the Aulde Dubliner. Color is pretty much plain yellow. Average whitehead, a wee bit hazy. Aroma is really heavy on yeast and lemon. Taste is typical saison -- fruits (pear, lemon) and tartness. Quite carbonated and rather dry. Typical Beauís freshness/grainy mouthfeel. Good.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
Tap at The Only Cafe. Pale golden pour with a tight white head. The aroma is softly peppery with a touch of clove and some light citrus as well. A little. It of lean wheaty spice as well as some prickly ethanol (even though itís only 5.9%). Light palate and appropriately dry. A little bit of pear seems to pop up here. Solid - if pedestrian - saison.
